Title: Dreams in White
Author: Crimson Obsession
Fandom: X2: X-Men United
Pairing: Logan/Kurt
Rating: G
Disclaimer: Logan owns himself, don'tcha think? Eh, Marvel owns it all, Marvel and Fox. And I love them for it, yes I do.
Author's Notes: Written for the contrelamontre White challenge, in two sittings, approximately 40-45 minutes. Hee...I'm actually happy with this one, tis unusual for me. It also turns out this could've fit last week's no dialogue challenge as well XD. Go figure. More dream-stuffs...


He dreams in white.

He dreams flawless white ceiling, wall, floor covered in tile. Discolorations drip and flow, disappearing down silver drains and leaving only a slight red residue, easily cleaned. White tile shimmering in glaring flourescence, the reek of bleach, astringent and alcohol burning the flesh off his hypersensitive nostrils. Highlights tinting the thick liquid metal until it's tubes of sharp, glaring white leading to sparkling needles. An implosion of light behind his eyes as he tries to scream.

He dreams snowfall, blizzard, flurries turning the windshield into a canvas, not glass; blank linen waiting to be painted alizarin crimson. Out of the truck, and flakes fill him, clogging nostrils until breathing all but stops and his mouth gapes open with a harsh choking sound. He tastes hunger, the metallic tang of blood and the musky stench of predatory arousal. He peers into the sheets of white, and sees nothing. Back into the truck.

He dreams of the Lady's torch, broken and replaced with a disgusting mockery, a machine that stands for everything she doesn't, a machine that blazes white. Lightning streams from it, washes over him, envelopes him in bursting electricity that screams, only to be pierced by a scream far more important. Through the light he catches a glimpse of red whipping about a frightened young face. His claws flash. The girl will have that white streak for the rest of her life.

He lives in dark.

In the woods, where the curling smoke of his cigar and a stench of sulfur and brimstone are the only intrusions on the purity of wind, and trees, and wildlife.

In darkened halls, where restlessness meets restlessness, brown eyes meet gold.

In bed, hands on indigo skin that melts into shadow, calloused fingertips grazing silk and scar. Night, and yellow-gold pinpricks burn the white from behind his eyes.

He dreams in white.

He lives in dark.

Hey, I like it! It's short, but it doesn't have to be long when it's just a fleeting recollection or three...

What's the challenge this week, write something revolving around the color white?

Before I review, the rabbid trigun fangirl that is 85% of me just spasmed at your musical selection XD; it's called "Sound Life" ^^. Sorry..couldn't let that go!

As much as a fan I am of Trigun, Im probably equally as clueless about X-men. And the only fics I've been reading are the ones you've been posting here at CLM. But, this pairing has really grown on me I think. Maybe not as a ..er..'cute' couple like alot of other fandoms/couples have..but a relationship forged out of need I guess. Their pain draws them together? Not any sort of flirty love or passion...but finding solice in their similiarly pained pasts. Forgive me if Im like, completely wrong..thats just my guestimation ('look ma, i made a wurd!'). Im SOooo clueless about X-men/Marvel in general.

Actual fic is written beautifully..short n sweet. Mmm..like a little nugget of chokolit to pop in yo' mouth and savor..er..WHITE chokolit?!! XD.

Another thing is the nice rythm of the paragraphs. And the little white/dark thing. Flow of the words and transitions between paragraphs/thoughts/ect. is such a bastard to get right so a fic flows smoothly.

In short; youre talented ^^.

Heh heh, sorry to send your inner fangirl into spasms ^_^;;. I didn't know the actual name of the song, and hoped if I'd said that someone would correct me. And you did, thankew! Newbie Trigunite to veteran obsessive, can you please direct me to some good Vash/Wolfwood stuff? I just got to see the last eps the other day, and DAAAAYUMN!!!! That show is SO FUCKING BEAUTIFUL!! And such slash potential, oh yes ^_^.

As for your review, thankew vereh much!!! I'm flattered that you'd read my fics even without knowing the fandom! And that the pairing's starting to grow on you, heee, that fills me with squishy warm thoughts ^_^. I love your estimation of the relationship, that's pretty much how I see it (though cute, squishy fics starring the pairing are trying to force their way out of my brain and onto the paper...er, compooter screen now).

Hee, white cokolit :D.

Thank you so much for all the great commentage! You make me blush profusely you do ^_^;;. [GLOMP!!] Sank yuu!

Well, you should be proud of this one. Beautifully poetic, and it works nicely as a vignette. Or whatever you call that length. :)

Hee, vignette's as good a word as any ^_^. Thankew!! That's the second time it's been called poetic, and I still say poetry eludes me, heh. But thanks ^_^. [GLOMP!!] Hope to hear more from you soon!
